Where the world comes to study the Bible

Issue 011. 2013 July/August Bible.org Translator's Newsletter

New Site Design

The past couple months have been very busy ones for us here at Bible.org. We have upgraded our hosting software and completely redesigned the site. One of the nice improvements that relate to translations is the ability for translated articles to show up in their own correct series. For example, all the articles from the now completed Kenneth Boa series and this Bob Deffinbaugh series can be viewed together on their own series pages.

Thank You!

This last couple months have resulted in 4 new articles for translations being added to the site. Thank you for your hard work Jenny and Mariza!

         Portuguese
Bob Deffinbaugh, 2 Samuel series, David’s Return to Jerusalem (2 Samuel 19:9-20:26)

         Chinese
Bob Deffinbaugh, Spiritual Warfare,
Kenneth Boa, Bible Companion Handbook series,
IV. Literary Forms In The Bible

         Czech
Steve Cole, Hebrews (PDF posting)

What a blessing to be able to provide these new resources to our readers around the world. Thank you all for your ongoing translation work. See the Languages and Articles Here.

Hints and Tips

Tip: have you ever wondered how to give feedback on the English or Chinese versions of the NET Bible?

A convenient interface in our Net.Bible.org Study environment allows one to do this quite easily. At the bottom of the study environment click on the grey “Report Problem” link. Then click on the button for "Add a comment" on the Translation. In the page that loads there is the opportunity to change the language of the version one is commenting on (default English). Once the correct language is chosen, simply input the passage the comment will refer to. Then click on the "Add Comment" button at the bottom of the page and you will be set to give us the feedback on the NET Bible English/Chinese translation.
